Hello! I am a positive and passionate person. I love children and teaching. I spent the past year working in South Korea teaching English to elementary age students. I love adventure and trying new things. This definitely translates into my teaching style. I maintain a positive and upbeat attitude in every situation. I hope to help your child grow and achieve their academic goals with my enthusiasm, educational experience, and compassion.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is to create a positive and encouraging learning environment for students to recognize their true potential. I will help each student make the appropriate academic gains while realizing learning can be a fun and rewarding experience.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
A first session will primarily be spent getting to know the student, where they are academically, and what progress they would like to see in a given amount of time. A first session is an opportunity for some pre-assessment and to make goals for our learning.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
Positive reinforcement is key. I think learning should be a fun experience where the student is made aware when they are on the right track. I like to incorporate hands-on activities and breaks to help students stay focused and motivated.
